KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Investigators are looking for the person who broke into a Kalamazoo apartment while a woman was taking a shower.

The incident happened Friday night or Saturday morning, right about midnight in the 1100 block of Ivy Chase in Kalamazoo.

Investigators say that the woman called police after the man entered her apartment and confronted her while she was in the shower.  She was able to defend herself and the man ran from the apartment.

The suspect is described as a heavy set, white man in his early 20s.  According to the woman, he had dark facial hair and dark hair that was pulled back from his face, possibly in a bun.

Police say there had been a report of a window peeper during the week before at a neighboring apartment complex.  They don't know if the incidents are connected.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at 269-337-8994 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.
